Alexis Somerford death happened May 25, 2019 after an alleged suicide by gunshot in her Palm Coast home.
27 year old Alexis Marie Somerford was found dead in a back bedroom with a gunshot to the head from a rifle at her home at 85 Farragut Drive in Palm Coast.
The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the alleged suicide death.
Alexis Somerford death:
Somerford is the mother of four young children with her 28 year old husband Kristopher. Somerford’s four children – three girls and a boy – are aged 1, 4, 5 and 6. Her son is the 5 year old.
Before her death, her family was struggling financially. In March, Somerford was court-ordered to pay a $2,900 credit card bill, payments on which had stopped in 2017. Last week, the property management company representing the Pennsylvania-based homeowners (Good As New Ventures LLC) filed an eviction notice against the Somerfords.
On arriving at her home after her death, Flagler County Fire Rescue and Palm Coast Fire Department paramedics at the scene tended to Somerford.
She was initially transported to AdventhHealth Palm Coast, from where she was flown out on Trauma One, the emergency helicopter, to Shands Hospital in Jacksonville.
Alexis Somerford was pronounced dead at Shands Hospital in Jacksonville.
Her house was cordoned off by the sheriff’s office, crime scene investigators and detectives took over the scene as investigation commenced.
Sheriff Rick Staly said:
“All deaths are investigated to ensure that nothing criminal may have occurred.
While there will continue to be law enforcement presence in the area for the investigation, I want the community to know that there is no threat or cause for concern.”
After his wife’s death, Kristopher was placed under the Baker Act for suicidal statements he made on scene and transported to Halifax Hospital.
May her soul rest in perfect peace.
